Hi I'm Polly

I grew up in Alabama, and I used to water-ski on the lake and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up on a farm, and liked to use the bank across my road as a slide. I went to Nursing School which allowed me to enter the Air Force as a 2nd Lieutenant. I have traveled many places.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints while I was stationed at Malcolm Grow Air force Base. The decision to become a member of this church was one of the best decisions that I have ever made and has brought to me many blessings .

How I live my faith

My testimony of Jesus Christ has grown so strong . I love all people and I know that Heavenly Father really wants us to be happy and love each other as Brothers and Sisters. May things that I learned as a Baptist , I have not forgotten such as God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that so should not perish but have everlasting life.I have gained more knowledge and understanding of the scriptures from my study of the King James version of the Holy Bible and the Book of Mormon ,as another witness of Jesus Christ .I know that these books are true and Jesus is this Christ what joy that brings my soul. In Jesus Christ name, Amen.

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Polly
Our bodies are amazing because we are made in the image of God. We have flesh and bones just like he has. Our bodies were made to perform many wonderful things such as care for the sick and nourish one another with the word of God. We were given many talents and gifts when we came into this world that we can use and be a benefit to each other and our families. Heavenly Father loves us all and delights to bless us, all we have to do is to have the faith and pray , ask him and he hears us. He has also restored the gospel through the prophet Joseph Smith and has given us the knowledge of the word of wisdom which helps us to know how to take care of our bodies from refraining from those things which would hurt us.When we take care of our body I think we our showing our heavenly Father that we honor him for what he has given us.the Holy Ghost is there for us and we must live worthy to feel his influence in our lives. To be alive is a blessing because we are continuing to learn and grow even if we make mistakes Heavenly Father is always there to forgive us We have to repent and seek forgiveness and be baptized and continue serving the lord. Fellow shipping with each other, giving our testimonies and bearing each others burdens helps others and ourselves as we learn as we serve one another. Show more Show less
